A Duck says "Quack" and so do I! I can do my first official animal sound, and I'm following in my big brothers footsteps. I love ducks! "Quack" is one of my first official words, but I think that for baby book purposes we are going to go with "Daddy" as my first word. I am definitely Daddy's boy. We hang out together a lot while Mom takes Preston to gymanstics, and Daddy and I love to chill together. I love Mommy, too, of course, but Daddy is way more fun.
It's been a big week for "firsts" for me. In addition to learning to Quack, I also got to spend my first afternoon in the big boy room at daycare. I loved it! There is a lot more room to explore, things to climb on, new bins of toys to dump... a whole new world. I'll be in the big boy room full time closer to May. I'm still working on walking. I can get around on my feet, going from room to room, but I'm not quite steady yet.
I also started nodding "yes" today, and I totally love to give hi-fives now. They are hilarious!
Miss Erin had a funny story from daycare. Mom and Dad have been slacking on my lunches lately. They were running out of delicious things to pack, so when I had black beans as a snack for the third day in a row I got really mad about it. I dumped them everywhere and wouldn't eat a single one. Don't get me wrong, I do love black beans... but not EVERYDAY. Come on! To add insult to injury, Aliyah was eating her delicious lunch right next to me. She had mac and cheese. Her Mom must actually love her. (Side note from Mommy: After Erin told me this story about Luke wanting Aliyah's mac and cheese I went home that night and made a huge batch of home made mac and cheese for dinner with plenty left over for both lunches the next day. Nothing like a guilt trip to get me back into being a good parent).
Mmmmm....This soupy is SO delicious:
